FORESIGHT PUBLISHING specializes in producing self-published books in three categories
By narrowing our efforts to these three fields, we provide a focus that is lacking in publishers who print any type of work from any author. This makes us artisanal crafters of professional development books that give companies and business individuals the kind of professional boost and credibility that comes with becoming a published author.

Foresight Book Publishing is a division of Foresight Book Publishing, Inc., a Christian-owned organization and a nationally leading publisher of management development training programs.
Foresight is affiliated with one of the world’s largest book distributor, offering immediate access to more than 71,000 retailers and library customers globally. These include Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Walden Books, Family Christian Stores, and Books-A-Million, among others. Our distribution network also includes Spring Arbor, a preferred wholesale distributor for Christian retailers for more than 27 years.
Publishing success is now a reality with the On-Demand printing of soft and hard-bound books by Foresight. Whether it’s one book or 10,000, each copy of the book is printed after the order is placed with the advantage of worldwide distribution through wholesalers, retailers, and online booksellers. Once we finish with the writing and production of your book, we will upload a specially formatted digital copy onto the distributors’ servers, which in turn will become available for ordering through our affiliated distribution network worldwide.

The concept is simple: WE help you write, design, produce and internationally distribute the book. YOU promote it.
• Talented ghostwriters who will help you develop your ideas and stories into a polished, professional-quality finished book.
• Individualized service that is customizable to your particular wants and needs.
• Completely transparent pricing and billing for our all-inclusive packages. The only extra charges you may incur will be an “a la cart” array of marketing support tools, to assist you in your promotional efforts.
• We guarantee a high quality product in both hard and soft cover formats as well as eBook formatting along wide distribution channels, which include Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
• With Foresight you will maintain full control of the manuscript, book production and appearance, as well as keep full ownership of your intellectual property.
• We will obtain on your behalf the International Standard Book Number or ISBN registration, UPC bar code assignment for retail sales listings, and Library of Congress and US Copyright registrations.
• Updates and corrections to your book can be made simpler and more economical with a digitally-stored and fully editable format, making your book a fluid, obsolete-free document.
Instead of filling your garage with books that may never sell, we print only what is needed to meet your current demand—whether that’s a single book or 10,000. Either made by you directly through your own website and public engagements or through one of the major online booksellers your book will be linked to, you will profit from every single sale of your book.
Once an order is placed, we have all the electronic files necessary to print and deliver the book to its buyer within 24 hours. The distance between book-maker and book-reader has never been shorter. Instead of worrying about logistics and inventory management, you simply deposit checks for books that have been sold within the month.
Once the book is entered into our system, information about your title enters the catalogs of the world’s largest distribution channel of wholesalers, retailers, and booksellers and fully ready to start generating profit.

A book is also the ideal vehicle to sell your products or services, network with new prospects, and develop your branding proposition or perception.
You don’t have to be a professional writer or dedicate much time to writing. A qualified ghostwriter will assist you in the writing your book so you no longer have to procrastinate because of writers block, lack of time, or lack of writing skills.
A Foresight book is an excellent fundraising tool. We produce the book for you at a one-time, wholesale price, and you sell your book at retail price. This means that you get to buy low and sell high so you gain profit with every sale. You could also give signed free copies to your major donors as a gift and in appreciation for their contributions. In a short time, this initial investment could be recovered and pay back many times over.
Your book will act as a great tool to obtain speaking engagements where you will be able to sell your message, your services, your company, as well as your book.
A self-published book can be one of the most credible branding tools for you, your campaign, or your company.

Professional, experienced illustrators will design and format your book, inside and out, to your full satisfaction.
You keep the intellectual property and copyrights of your book—the book does not belong to us, it belongs to YOU.
